Listen With Monger wrote:

“Simon Lynge is a uniquely brilliant talent in terms of his song-writing ability which is worth celebrating alone but his delivery and the way this album has been so beautifully (and painstakingly) assembled is deserving of a standing ovation.”

MALMØ – The Way feat. Eivør – New Single

MALMØ’s new single ‘The Way (feat. Eivør)’ is out now!

Taken from the recently released debut album ‘We Come From The Stars’, the new single sees Danish 5-piece MALMØ teaming up with acclaimed Faroese singer-songwriter Eivør (Game of Thrones, God of War) to share vocal duties with the band’s own Maria Malmoe.

The video, choreographed by Laura Feline Ebbesen and filmed by Michelle Berg and Stinna Skrivergaard, reflects the tribal vibe of the track and Maria’s inspiration for writing it:

“The Way is about getting lost in the woods and finding your way through the wild. Ancient voices and tribal drums echo in the deep. You want to run and run without knowing where you’re headed. There it is, my ‘Way’, curvy and unknown but mine to follow. I leap off on the first step.”

Previous singles ‘You’ and ‘We Come From The Stars’ created a good buzz, with spot plays on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Ulster, Amazing Radio, Shoreditch Radio and numerous regional stations, and Spotify playlisting from the likes of Crack In The Road, Alex Rainbird, Double J, Listen To Discover, TUNE, Big Tune IMR & Spotify editorial support as far away as Taiwan.

“Powerful, cinematic … ‘The Way’ is a brooding giant” Dancing About Architecture

“Bringing fragility and rawness into beautiful harmony” – Lo-Fi

“Captivating” Get In Her Ears

Simon Lynge – New Single

Simon Lynge’s new single ‘Age of Distraction’ is out now world-wide across all major streaming platforms.

Apple fans can grab it from this iTunes Link or stream via SoundCloud below

It’s the first single from his brand new album ‘Deep Snow’ which will be released on 23rd November, and follows previous praise from Q Magazine, The Sunday Times and Uncut Magazine. Recorded in a secluded cottage in the green hills of Wales and in the eclectic atmosphere of London’s Narcissus Studios, the album is a collaboration with long-time friend and musical partner, Richard Lobb.

Having spent his early years as a shepherd in the Greenland tundra, nature and life’s fragility are never far from Simon’s lyrics and this beautiful new track is no exception.

“I just wanted to acknowledge the underlying anxiety of existence in this age and the longing for connection that I believe is so pervasive in modern humans,” explains Lynge. “We have instant access to information, but our knowledge of the source of a meaningful life is at an all-time low. We look out of our eyes and forget to observe with our heart.”

MALMØ album – We Come From The Stars

MALMØ’s debut album ‘We Come From The Stars’ is out world-wide on 22nd June 2018 via Integrity Records/Songcrafter Music.

Hailing from Aarhus on Denmark’s east coast, 5-piece band MALMØ features the unique voice and song-writing of Maria Malmoe.

Link to iTunes / Apple Music

Record releases in their homeland and immersive live performances at this year’s Nordklang Festival (Switzerland), Arctic Sounds Festival (Greenland) and SPOT Festival (Denmark) have seen Maria likened to Agnes Obel, Eivør and Oh Land – but there’s a unique musical identity and integrity to her work that defies comparison. To Maria Malmoe, it’s all about the art and meeting the listener within it:

“I dream of touching people with my music, reaching their – and my own – inner core. I believe that music can do that, and that there’s a need for art that inspires the good in people. I think we all need that in this world on the edge of self-destruction.”

​UK singles ‘You’ and ‘We Come From The Stars’ garnered wide critical acclaim, with spot plays on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Ulster, Amazing Radio, Shoreditch Radio and numerous regional stations, with Spotify playlisting from the likes of Crack In The Road, Alex Rainbird, Double J, Listen To Discover, TUNE and Big Tune IMR.

Stream on Deezer

“Bringing fragility and rawness into beautiful harmony” – Lo-Fi

 “Bask in the glorious warmth that sits somewhere between First Aid Kit, Laura Marling and the impish Stina Nordenstam” – Listen With Monger

“Maria’s vocals are pure, celestial, with a hint of innocent bliss” – Cougar Microbes

 “Unassuming songs that bring joy on an intrinsic level” – When The Horn Blows

“Celestial” – Steve Lamacq, BBC 6 Music
